Memoirs of the Countess de Valois de La Motte: Containing a Compleat Justification of Her Conduct, and an Explanation of the Intrigues and Artifices Used Against Her by Her Enemies, Relative to the Diamond Necklace
Jeanne de Saint-Remy, Comtesse de la Motte, was a highly placed confidence woman whose greatest scam, the "Affair of the Diamond Necklace," sped the fall of the French monarchy. In spite of her self-serving and vengeful memoirs, published in England, most historians believe that she was guilty of the crimes of which she was convicted. The comtesse escaped to London and published her Memoirs, blaming Marie Antoinette for the whole affair; she died only five years later.
